English term or phrase: World Flag
A "World Flag". A flag for the world, not for a country or nation. A flag for all the nations combined, the whole world.
Ben Koch
Heimsfáni
Explanation:
In Icelandic this is a compound =
world = heimur
flag = fáni -> thus "heimsfáni" meaning "the flag of the world". We might also use "Alheimsfáni" if we really wanted to.

Hope this helps.
